Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in Amarin Corporation ("Amarin" or the "Company")(NASDAQ:AMRN) of the April 23, 2019 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action that has been filed against the Company.

The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the New Jersey on behalf of all those who purchased Amarin securities between September 24, 2018 and November 9, 2018 (the "Class Period"). The case, Sharma v. Amarin Corporation, PLC et al., No. 19-cv-06601 was filed on February 22, 2019, and has been assigned to Brian R. Martinotti.


The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by making false and/or misleading statements regarding its REDUCE-IT study. The placebo given to patients in the study’s control arm may have increased the incidence of cardiovascular events in those patients, thus making Vascepa appear more effective than it actually was.


On November 10, 2018, scientists that conducted the REDUCE-IT trial presented the full results of that study at the Scientific Sessions of the American Heart Association in Chicago, Illinois. In that presentation, the scientists disclosed for the first time "bad" LDL cholesterol levels rose three percent in the Vascepa patients and ten percent in the placebo patients. Other markers of blood fat were also higher in the placebo patients.

On this news, Amarin's share price fell from $21.05 per share on November 9, 2018 to a closing price of $15.38 on  November 13, 2018: a $5.67 or a 26.94% drop.
